Zucchini Latkes for Chanukah
Looking for something different this Chanukah to go with your Brisket? Why not try some Zucchini Latkes? These are delicious, healthy and a change from the traditional potato latke.
1 pound Zucchini, shredded with skin left on
1 medium onion, minced
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs beaten
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup oil (canola, olive, grapeseed, etc)
Monterey Jack cheese, optional (depending on your menu and dietary restrictions)
Mix all ingredients together except the oil. Pour small amount of oil in a skillet to cover the bottom of the pan. When hot drop a tablespoon of the mixture into the pan (drop close to the pan to avoid splattering yourself) and press lightly with the back of your spoon to form a small circle. Continue leaving space between each latke and adding more oil as necessary. Brown on one side and then flip over to brown on the other side.
If desired you can add some Monterey Jack cheese on top of each or some of the Latkes for additional flavor. Dietary restrictions may apply if you’re kosher and eating meat with these latkes. Also wonderful with a dollop of sour cream on top or spice it up and add some cayenne to the batter.
Sorry the photo is a little blurry. After taking the pictures my family gobbled these up before I even uploaded them onto the computer. Otherwise, I would have taken a few more shots for better clarity.
For those of you that celebrate Chanukah I wish you and your families a very Happy Holiday!
